Support groups meet in person in counties across Florida and online in our LupusConnect Community.

People with lupus often feel alone with their disease and the everyday struggles that the disease brings to their lives, especially during times when the disease is active. LFA support groups provide a warm and caring environment where people with lupus, their family members, caregivers, and loved ones can share their experiences, methods of coping and insights into living with this chronic illness. Our support group facilitators are certified and have been through LFA training. 

Support Groups meet:

In-person

For the safety of our constituents, our in-person support groups have been postponed until further notice. In the meantime, we are here for you every step of the way. We encourage you to join our online support group, Lupus Connect. Our helpline is also open Monday- Friday, 9am-5pm at 1-855-905-8787 or email [email protected]upusfl.org 

Online

LupusConnect is an online lupus community where individuals with lupus and their loved ones can engage with others like them to share experiences, find emotional support and discuss practical insights for coping with the daily challenges of the disease.
